This pudding is a perfect high fibre and protein breakfast to balance your blood sugar levels and leave you feeling full and satisfied.A great alternative to oats, especially for those who find they cause some digestive upset. Slightly grainy, you get all the texture and taste without any upset bellies, YAY!
This can be made as a breakfast or dessert and served warm (we would highly recommend) or cold with toppings of choice.
Cook time: 10 minutes
1 cup of milk of choice (we use unsweetened almond milk) 2 tbsp chia seeds 1 whole egg, beaten
1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Topping of choice – we like thawed berries so that all the naturally sweet juices trickle through every spoonful!
Something crunchy…If you love a crunch sprinkle with some nuts, seeds or granola if desired.
Something creamy…drizzle a dollop of yoghurt or nut butter (almond, cashew, macadamia all so good)
Place the milk in a saucepan over a medium-low heat. Once nearly boiling, remove from heat and pour into the egg mixture and whisk through. Then pour back into the pan adding the chia seeds and cook until the chia seeds have absorbed all the milk and they are soft and plump. Stir occasionally.
TIP: You want this to cook slowly so the egg does not seperate. Once you have made it once, you will know the best temperature setting for your stovetop.
